Spiritual mage is a potent magic user that can easily kill low-level players. Protect from Magic or Deflect Magic is highly recommended for players with lower defence, while Soul Split works best for higher-levelled players. Like all monsters in the God Wars Dungeon, they are aggressive to any players that do not wear items showing affinity to their god or a Nex item. Spiritual mages require 83 Slayer to kill.
Spiritual mages are great droppers of various elemental staves and talismans, and are currently the only monster to drop
dragon boots. It is also possible to obtain pieces of the Warpriest armour sets: Warpriest of Zamorak armour, Warpriest of Saradomin armour, Warpriest of Armadyl armour, and Warpriest of Bandos armour sets as a drop from their respective Spiritual mages.
Carrying or wearing an
ectoplasmator will give 15 prayer experience per kill. Alternatively, an attuned ectoplasmator will give 72 prayer experience per kill.
